Today, all of a sudden, Safari has not been functioning as it used to. Any site which my username and/or screen name was automatically remembered, generally by the "remember me?" feature in most log in areas, is no longer working. These forums, MySpace, etc... every time I visit, regardless of whether Safari is closed or not, just wipes itself clean and I have to re-enter everything. Why could this be and why all of a sudden? Thanks :)

Do you have "Private Browsing" enabled? This will make it so that Safari won't keep any cookies from sites you visit, which would create that behavior.

Check Safari --> Preferences --> Security. Did your "Accept cookies" setting get turned off by any chance?

Hmm...I thought Private Browsing automatically deleted all cookies at the end of your browser session. :confused:

I think it only deletes the ones during private browsing, not the others.
